Aimlessly going & thoughts don't come

January 24, 2013

My head is throbbing. The pressure is constant. I walk around the house aimlessly. My eyes are heavy. I sit in front of the computer, blank page starring back at me. I want to write.  Nothing comes. Thoughts swirling around in my head, but not a single one landing to take root. Maybe the fog is too thick, still recovering from being sick.

Instead I look at my blog. What can I change? Probably shouldn't do anything drastic. I haven’t planned on making any changes and I’m not thinking clearly, my head feels so foggy. When will this fog clear? 

Well, maybe just a small change. The date is too far away from the post title. I have been meaning to fix that for some time now. Okay, now that’s done, now what? 


I just write, nothing at all just thoughts...jibber jabber. 

It has been this way for months now. 

Too much noise, too many distractions.

I sit, still starring. What I really want to do is close my eyes. I do for a moment. Ah! Boy does that feel good! When was the last time I took a nap in the middle of the day?

I open my eyes and notice the cat stretched out on the brick hearth next to the wood burning stove. I think how nice and begin to feel jealousy stir towards my cat. 

Okay now, focus…focus. 

I close my eyes again to think.  I get kicked in the thigh by my little one next to me. I see I’m not getting anywhere. 

I think I'll go grab a cup of coffee!

Five Minute Friday: Opportunity

January 04, 2013

h how I rejoiced this morning that today is Friday! Hallelujah! Granted it was a short week after being off for the holidays, but Friday couldn't have come soon enough. Let us rejoice and be glad!

Yup, its that time again. Linking up with Lisa Joe for Five Minute Friday!

Ah, yes the beginning of the new year we are full of new opportunities, looking ahead with hope and anticipation that this year will be the year. The year of what you may ask. Well, the year to do and be whatever God calls us to.

I am not one for making new year's resolutions, probably because I never keep them. This year I started thinking about goals and what I want to accomplish this year, for me and my family. I decided we are going to be more intentional about everything. More intentional about living life the way God intended us to and not missing out on the opportunities and blessings He wants to shower us with. 
Just the other day I said that word to my four year old. We were invited to a friend's house. Someone who I haven't seen in a long time. My son was telling me he wanted to stay home, he didn't want to go out. I told him it will be fun. We will meet  new people and besides, we can't stay home all the time. We may just miss out on an opportunity God has opened for us!

Let us not let opportunities slip away. Let's love harder, live more intentional, be who God created us to be! Are you with me?


And that is all she has. Have a blessed day!
